    Re: Drunk U of I student loses fingers and toes to frostbite

    A good friend of mine at EIU (yes, it's possible) said the rumor around campus is that he was urinating in the alley when he passed out and...well....it might not be just fingers and toes.

    Hope it's just a bad rumor. Would really put a damper on Valentine's Day if true.

    Or better yet, know your limit. I would hate to lose a lifetime for 2 hours of drunken debauchery.

    Just another indication the bar/drinking scene in IC is out of control.

    I do feel bad for this person. Their entire life has been altered because of a bad decision.

    This could easily happen at any college campus in the country... At least in the north...

    Didn't we just have an unfortunate incident recently? It can happen anywhere. It's just a sad, sad story.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Nothing ever good comes from drinking IMO.

    Yes, and more was lost then just fingers and toes.

    While very true...IC needs to get a better handle on the situation IMO.

    I heard about something like this from a friend of mine who knows this family, unless a similar incident happened elsewhere, which is possible. It really could happen anywhere where there is drinking and cold.

    Devastating to families...if this is who I think it is, their family is wondering where they went wrong, but unfortunately no matter how you raise your kids, they could make a poor choice like this.
